Maybe that's why no one told me what my progesterone level was...they just gave me prometrium and told me to take it. I didn't have to worry about what it meant. Good luck on Tuesday!

I'm glad to hear Dr. Calm is willing to keep a close eye on you. Will be keeping you and your little one in my thoughts

Wow - I am so sorry that it has to be one thing or another - I will be looking for your update.

I never had my progesterone checked. After 8 weeks, my RE just said to stop supplementing. I've had several friends with low P4 do just fine, but I can understand why you're nervous, and will be anxiously awaiting your updates.

My RE was huge on progesterone supplementation. Mine was in the 30s and 40s and I still had to be on Prometrium. 200mg 2x day. I was on until 16 weeks. Then, I switched to P17 shots until I delivered.

Talk to your doctor about keeping on progesterone for as long as possible. It really does make a difference.

After Words

Ugh. I had progesterone issues as well and stayed on PIO until 14 weeks (prescribed by my RE who I was still seeing). I had a fair amount of bleeding during the first trimester so the whole thing was pretty tense. After that, the RE's office wasn't comfortable keeping me as a patient anymore and the OB wasn't comfortable keeping me on PIO so I switched to 17P for the duration.

Best of luck to you.
